That Highlighter Though…

Makeup on fleek is my mantra this year. I’ve been doing makeup on myself for a while now and getting better at it every day.

I follow loads of makeup artist to learn those few tips and tricks and here’s what I learnt; Strobing and highlighting is here to stay, just like contour! Both these techniques go hand in hand. If you contour, you also highlight! If you have a shadow, there has to be light.

Imagine my excitement when I received this awesome Highlight and Contour palette, a pro one at that and from no less than Tarte cosmetics! This palette is a part of the spring launches at Sephora Middle East. That Highlighter though… ❤ ❤

Suddenly, I have this dying urgency to highlight my cheeks, the tip of my nose and my pout on an everyday basis. It definitely helps that I live in Dubai and it’s normal to have a full made up face every single day. I say this cause I thought that a full blown makeup is restricted to a night event or a date night! But here, I don’t feel out of place with a perfectly made up face – highlighter, lashes, the works!!

I’m addicted to this palette will be an understatement! I’ve been using this for almost a week now and am loving the effect!! The pigments of this palette are intense and in beautiful shades ranging from light to dark to suit your need!

There’s also a cream contour shade in this palette which works brilliantly!

Aren’t these shades just gorgeous? this palette is available exclusively at Sephora Stores in the Middle East and online at 

I would love to know your take on this palette! Do leave your comments below.

Until laters…

Super Fun Spring Camp From Splash ‘n’ Party

Being a mum, I’m always torn between the convenience of letting my little one watch his telly and or play on his ipad (IT GIVES ME SO MUCH TIME TO DO MY STUFF!!) or engage with him in fun activities.

While giving in to the temptation of keeping him busy with his ipad is super easy, I do have this overwhelming guilt of not exposing him to actual physical activities which are so good for him and for me!! I’ve grown up without any devices and I’m just fine!! I love the outdoors and the fun that I can have, the wonders that I can explore.

So this Spring Break, I decided to look for interesting and affordable options for Farhang to indulge in.

Scotch And Soda… Actually Connecting…

What do you expect in a launch event from a fashion brand? a high profile fashion show with models working the ramp in fabulous clothes hand picked from the latest collection. And you being seated somewhere looking in awe at the gorgeous and almost perfect models, right?

That’s where Scotch and Soda made a huge impact on me. They truly connected with everyone who attended the event! The place was magical. The turn of events was unexpected and it was truly amazing!!

Scotch & Soda, Amsterdam’s much sought-after high fashion couture brand, launched its brand-new Spring/Summer 2017 collection in the UAE this month. Straying away from conventional fashion shows, PR & Marketing Manager Tehzeeb Huda decided to try out something different to promote the brand.


Scotch & Soda joined hands with well-reputed English restauranteur Leopold’s of London. “The two brands both have that beautifully rustic, European charm; one catering to fashion and the other to fine teas, coffees and café-style dining” said Tehzeeb, “but we wanted to take this one step further, and use real people as our models for showcasing the brand-new Scotch & Soda collection.”

What better way to showcase a brand-new fashion range than to reach out to the youth of today? Scotch & Soda worked with the students at Manipal University. With a great deal of help and support from Sabir Haque (Head of the School of Media & Communications), an audition was held on campus and 10 ‘models’ were selected to represent the brand.

Apart from the chosen models, 20-year-old Manipal University student Karan Hanj, a third-year student studying Media & Communications, worked as the official choreographer for Scotch & Soda, and put together a spectacular show for the media guests.

The guests were seated in the very scenic, brand new Leopold’s of London café in Riverland, Dubai Parks & Resorts. They sat alfresco, sipping on the choicest of teas and coffee and were taken by surprise when members of their table suddenly got into the groove of the music and stood up to showcase the Spring/Summer 2017 collection for Scotch & Soda.

The students added oomph and panache with their well-choreographed moves, and proudly showcased the Scotch & Soda Spring/Summer 2017 collection.

we were then treated to a fabulous multi course lunch at the amazing Leopold’s Restaurant. All in all, it was on of the best events that I’ve attended this year.

I’ll be posting some looks with their new collection very soon!!

Until Laters….

Got It From Her!!!

Mother’s Day is right around the corner. You got it from her, it’s time to give back!!!


Today I visited the Body Shop store in Dubai festival City. I love this mall. It feels nice and cosy and the vibe here is so relaxed!! Unlike other malls, people are not in a hurry to reach anywhere. They take their own sweet time browsing through shops and choosing their favourite stuff. This shows in the way the shop reps speak to you and treat you. I’ve never seen a frazzled shop rep in DFC. That’s why, I love to shop here.


Coming back to The Body Shop, The store has a huge facade of an entrance where they proudly display their heart of gold. Their tagline is; Enrich, Not Exploit. They live by this motto and hence their products are 100% vegetarian, cruelty free and not tested on poor animals. And trust me, these guys are proud of this and shout it out loud!!



So once you’re through admiring and taking in the motto story at the entrance, you’re greeted with this offer cart / wheel barrow which is full of buckets which in turn are full of hand cream tubes! all for AED 22 as of today. I love their hand creams. The tube size is just perfect to carry in a bag. These are an option if you’re running short on cash for a mother’s day gift.

The best part I liked about their Mother’s Day gifting options was the personalised body butter tubs! you can totally put your fav sticker on her tub of rich body butter which smells insane!!! Just ask for help and you shall get the most adorable little tubs of joy for your Mum!!


Then right in the centre of the entrance, is the station of Mother’s day gifts. The packaging and the thought behind putting the best products together is brilliant. They have individually packaged product boxes and pouches, like strawberry, coconut, and some more in small and smaller packages.


They also boast a fab, huge box of Spa’s of the world goodies. This one’s for AED 299 and is a sure hit. It’s a mommy thing. It’s got all that a Mommy would love to indulge in.


Then there is a separate section of face masks. an Insider tip here – MOMMIES LOVE FACE MASKS!!!

The masks cost AED 115 each. Buy one or two or all of them for your mum, she’ll love them, my guarantee!! Don’t forget to buy that fab face mask application brush to go in the bag. It’s totally adorb!!!


The Body Shop also has some gorgeous makeup and amazing makeup brushes!! Take some help from the lovely shop assistants to decide on the best product within your budget. They’re super helpful and not trying to get the most money out of you!!


My experience at this place was very pleasant. I keep going to The Body Shop very often for my Hand Cream tubes and my Face Masks. I will surely recommend that you visit this store for your Mother’s Day gifting solutions!



More on Mother’s Day gifts coming soon!
